With the lack of a road verge these sidewalks need protection from the passing cars. Two way traffic makes the pedestrian/cycle experience worse because you have more traffic passing closer to the narrow sidewalk. Ideally, I'd suggest we narrow the street, widen the sidewalk and plant some trees/gardens between the sidewalk and the road. Alternate parking with protected bump-outs to require cars to "weave", and lower the speed limit to 30k. Suddenly you have suburban style boulevards rather than gritty city streets. If we could get over this nonsense of two way vs one way perhaps we could actually make these streets more inviting and complete.
